After failing to find a business partner with which to deliver its vision for the now-cancelled MMO, Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millenium, THQ is looking to salvage an “immersive single player and online multiplayer experience” from the wreckage.
Details on how the big budget project will be “refocussed” have yet to be fully disclosed, though a sequel to last year’s Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine seems most likely. The bulky third person shooter scored an impressive 8 with Dan last year, the game managing to shift 1.2 million copies within two months of launching.
As a result 118 jobs have been cut, 79 full-time contracts terminated at Vigil Games, with 39 at Relic. We wish former members of both studios the very best.
